Military Family Programs

Who We Serve

The Park Trust supports a broad range of military communities, including active military and Gold Star Families, military family survivors, National Guard and Reserve, veterans, their families, and caregivers.

What We Do

We provide these dedicated servicemen and women and their families with memorable outdoor park experiences in a variety of public parks, lands, and waters nationwide.

How To Help

Help us continue to provide meaningful outdoor experiences designed to connect military families to their local communities and public parks, lands & waters.

Our Partnerships:

In partnership with military installations and military-focused nonprofits, in 2023 we engaged more than 1,000 participants from 225 families in 28 experiences in nature. From fishing and hiking at Assateague National Seashore (MD) to exploring the waters of Mowich Lake within Mount Rainier National Park (WA), families learned about the many educational and health benefits of being outdoors as they developed lifelong recreation habits.

In June 2023, the Park Trust brought D.C. metro area families to Mallows Bay-Potomac River National Marine Sanctuary (MD) for a day of fishing and kayaking. Be part of their adventure – watch the video below:
